This issue was the first part of the first ever originally-written Star Trek comic story to be serialized over more than one issue, and is the only such example in Marvel's 1980s Star Trek run. The only previous issues with cliffhanger endings were the previous two issues, which represented the broken up adaptation of TOS comic: "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". There would not be another multipart Star Trek comic until DC Comics began their four-part Federation-Klingon War of 2285 storyline in their first issue, TOS comic: "The Wormhole Connection".
